SKU 18-Wah Wah LPS 153
Finally reissued for the first time in over 2 decades (and for the very first time on vinyl), is the classic, fantastic second release by this quintessential French avant / art / performance band and spectacle. One of France's greatest contributions to avant-progressive music during the 70s-80s! And the sleeve is magnificent. Hugely recommended!

"Urban Sax's music is constructed over the concept of "'continuous sound'", around which build and develop poly-rhythmic loops, modulated and nested in a partition and a principle of "distant sound" allowing to question the listening audience. It is about linking audio and visual performances. The music is semi repetitive, with evolving pieces of different colors. Entire saxophone family is represented: sopranos, altos, tenors and bass baritones..." -Wikipedia.
1978's Urban Sax 2, also on Cezanne / Cobra, is the continuation of their debut work. Again there are similarities with works by La Monte Young, Phil Niblock, Glenn Branca, Steve Reich, Terry Riley, a.o. are present, and it's the perfect companion to 1 as it is, basically, part two of that first album. This reissue features a booklet with photos and liner notes written by Gilbert Artman himself."
